Senior Consultant, Tulsa:
“In Q4 2016, an extensive strategy project took me on the following route: Copenhagen-Stockholm-Oslo-Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Fort Lauderdale-New York-Tulsa. The Tulsa client and I hit it off really well, so he let me borrow his gigantic four-wheel drive for my entire stay at the site. Pretty cool”.
Senior Consultant, Miami:
“Last autumn, on a project aimed to accelerate product innovation in the marine industry, my team ended up in Florida. In the Sunshine State, we found ourselves at the largest boat show in the world: talking to industry experts, engaging in conversations with customers and suppliers and eying the competition. Needless to say, our smiles went from ear to ear during our time in Florida”.

Senior Consultant, Montreal:
“During my four months in Montreal, I was working closely with a really cool client on how they could optimise internal collaboration in order to win more customers in the future. Aside from it being my first trip to Canada, I also got to experience a lot of other “firsts” with my team over the weekends; my first punk festival, my first attempt at mountain climbing and my first time spending a Saturday night watching a mixed martial arts match”.

Senior Consultant, Reykjavik:
“I spent five weeks working on a project in Reykjavik for one of Iceland’s major insurance companies. We helped them design a new KPI- and incentives structure, which will be tested in a set of pilots. Apart from being on an intriguing project, which deepened my understanding of the insurance industry, it was very interesting to work with a whole new team together with the client and to see the spectacular nature”.
“For the past couple of months, I have worked on a commercial excellence project with roll-out in selected markets in Europe and Asia. For me, that has meant visits to Oslo and Bucharest for workshops at the client site, engaging with the local teams and experiencing very different cultures as well as cuisines. Further, I have been able to use my Polish language skills to conduct interviews on a Denmark-UK-France trip. It’s really inspiring to work in a global environment across time zones, spanning from Portugal to Indonesia and Australia”.
“Last spring, fellow consultant Caroline Brandt and I found ourselves overlooking the Grand Canal from a rooftop restaurant in Venice, Italy. This happened after we, with a 24-hour notice, were asked to travel to Venice for a meeting with a key stakeholder of our client. The meeting went really well and we ended up starting a new project with the same client, which will run during the spring of 2017”.
“I have spent four action-packed months in Sydney, working for our Australian partner, Port Jackson Partners. I have gained industry-specific knowledge that was vital for the project I was working on, learnt to play touch rugby during our weekly Tuesday matches against other companies, and had the opportunity to explore the country”.
“At first, it was hard to believe that as a consultant from QVARTZ, I would have the chance to work in Beijing, the place where I was born and raised. Speaking the same language and sharing the culture, it was such a fun and pleasant experience to work closely with the local team. Together, we provided first-hand market insight into the Chinese strategy for a global player within the wind industry”.
